Buttermilk in Stockholm!

Sweden does not produce and sell buttermilk (kärnmjölk) commercially since year 2000, so I was very happy when I found buttermilk in one of the Polish grocery stores the other week. If I remember correctly, I believe that I paid 14 SEK.

    I live in Italy, no buttermilk here either, but I make it by adding a few drops of lemon juice to whole milk and leaving it in a jar at room temperature for a few hours.
    Nice blog, glad to have found it, have a super week.

    Here in Canada it is very hard to find buttermilk as well. I am originally from Germany where you can buy it everywhere and sometimes I really miss buttermilk.

    Ladies, look for Polish shops or get in touch with Polish community :-) It should not be a problem neither in Italy nor in Canada. Where Polish are, there is MASLANKA (buttermilk, buttermilch). This is how my German husband survived three years in UK. Fortunately for us quite recently it was introduced in bigger supermarkets (obviously to please Polish people :-)

    eah… i haven’t been able to find it up here in Skellefteå… but I suppose I haven’t desperately looked for it either.. BUt, maybe i should try checking again. Would it be named differently in the supermarkets if i were to find it?? smormjolk? haha

    Why did they stop making and selling buttermilk in Sweden?

    It’s funny that you have been looking for buttermilk in Sweden since it’s everywhere there. I am from Sweden and it’s one of the things I miss the most when I am over seas. It’s called “fil” och “filmjölk” and is in the dairy section of all shops. It’s thicker than buttermilk and Swedes eat it for breakfast with cereal but it’s very similar to buttermilk.

    W UK można znalezc maslanke, ale rzeczywiscie, z polskiego sklepu jest smaczniejsza ;). Albo zsiadle mleko, to dopiero rarytas!
    pozdrawiam :)

    The most obvious dairy product in Czech republic, called podmáslí. Why Sweden doesnt produce and sell it? Any reason?

    This is usually available in the UK and not in Polish sections – buttermilk is a key ingredient for Irish soda bread.

    That’s definitely a tough one to find in the States too! (usually a speciality place)

    Hmm… its tough to find here in New Zealand as well. We have ghee but I think it is different to European buttermilk. I always wanted to try making buttermilk pancakes.
